Import tax rates by country 

Selling to a specific country? Here are some need-to-know terms, followed by a table of international tax and de minimis rates. 


An import tax is a tax on foreign goods imported into a country levied by their customs authority. Every country and even state or province has a different import tax rate, name, and criteria.

De minimis, which is Latin for “about minimal things,” is the price threshold before taxes or duties are applied to imports. For example, in Australia, a 10% tax is applied to all transactions above their 1000 AUD de minimis.

Landed cost is the total amount charged to ship items to their destination, which combines shipping, taxes, duties, fees, insurance, and the cost of the item. Import tax may be applied only to the product, but sometimes it’s applied to the product, shipping, and other fees.
